Domaine des Marronniers Chablis Les Marronniers Premier Cru 2018, Burgundy, France
Pretty golden in color.
On the nose pears, apples, citrus, light wood, light spices, earth and minerals.
Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with lemons, ripe citrus fruits, apples, bitter herbs, spices, light oak, earth, vanilla and white pepper.
Long finish with almonds and spices.
This is a delicious Chardonnay from Burgundy. Well-balanced with an elegant mouthfeel.
This 4 year old is showing nice complexity now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
I had it before, and it is drinking even better now.
A good quality wine. Good right out of the bottle and better when not too cold.
Fruit forward and luxurious. Rich and focused.
Kosher and not Mevushal.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
$45. — 5 days ago
A very interesting inadvertent experiment. I left this in a styrofoam case in my garage. It was there for almost 3 months. The garage hits 90 during the day.
Any rate the wine tastes like the wine.
Go styrofoam !!!!!
Nose is ocean breeze. Lemon flower.
Palate is mineral. Hint of gods lemon soda.

These are night 2 notes. Nose has dense appley fruit and crushed rock. Only a little bit of that chicken broth note that I usually find more prominent. Big and dense in the mouth. Lots of rocky, seashell minerality. It’s got a lot of power, but the acids are lacking and the finish, while long, turns a wee bit bitter at the end. — 8 hours ago
Plus ample que le Clos, moins de longueur mais quand même très bon, s’est bien ouvert et a bien ëvolué au cours de la soirée. 91-92
Not as great as the Clos drank side by side but still a great Chablis, built larger then straight, needed more time to show itself. — 6 days ago
Nose has stuck match, candied pineapple, vanilla candy (pina colada?), warmed lemon peel, lemon meringue with faint moist chalk notes.
Palate has warmed lemon curd, chunky vanilla notes, almond cake, lithe with a medium finish.
Decanted 3H. $60 Costco.
Not inspiring at this date, incredibly youthful with likely two decades in front. Yet, a solid pair with grilled Steelhead Trout this evening. — 6 days ago
Holy Merde! Shy on the nose… light lemon yellow. But real complexity and astonishing balance. Classic brioche, lemon, ripe red apple, ripe juicy pear…touch reductive, but what a flavor ride… nice medium weight, long lingering finish.. classic, young match with crab, halibut, snapper…nice evidence for what Old World Chablis can bring to the party. — 2 days ago
Hard to beat PYCM with the menu at Jônt. I love the Charmes site and 2014 is wide open, with just a touch of flinty reduction, but it’s all about its purity of yellow fruit that’s complimented by ripping citrusy acids, hazelnut and a hint of vanilla cream. Its supremely concentrated and dense palate shows great structure, power and a balanced stony minerality. This is still a baby but already evolving wonderfully. Great bottle. — 7 hours ago
